Airports and surrounding areas are particularly vulnerable to intrusions of drones. Australian senator Barry O’Sullivan, former air crash investigator, said that drones in the vicinity of planes are a  “catastrophe is waiting to happen”. Without ability to detect and gain control over drones, security of airports will be compromised, and delayed flights, air traffic paralysis or in the worst cases plane crashes will become a grim reality.
